The 2016 running of the Bluenose Autosport Club Ledwidge Lookoff Rally has come and cone. Nine teams converged in Nova Scotia to take on the challenging roads of the Conrad Brother’s Quarry in Dartmouth before moving on to the forests of the Noel shore to attack 4 roads run multiple times throughout the evening and, for the first time ever, into the night for a total of 13 stages and over 100 competitive kilometres.
When the dust had settled (and there was a lot of dust!) Quebec rally mainstay Jean-Sébastien Besner and Hubert Gaudreau came out on top for the overall win with their fire-breathing Mitsubishi EVO IX, followed by Quebec team Mikael Arsenault and Manuel Arsenault and locals Jonathan Conrad and Wayne Pitts filling out the podium. Two wheel drive was claimed by local Mal Swann and his Quebec Co-driver Martin Cadieux with James Whitman and Daphne Sleigh taking second.
